|[qd-4270] Charmant Juliette - Musique Pour L'ame - Charmant Juliette (Julia van der Piller)|
Musique Pour L'ame (Music for the Soul) is ten tracks and 45+ minutes of melodic and harmonious downtempo electronica. This is pleasant music that flows from track to track, often within the same BPM range, recalling golden days of the past while inspiring dark visions of the future. What Russia-based musician and producer Charmant Juliette (Charming Juliette, in English) has done in this release is build musical structures far removed from the industrial glitch and dark noise of her alter-ego J...

|CARDINAL ZEN - Floppy Pillows [qd-4224] - J.V. Munoz|
Producer JV Munoz returns under a different guise as Cardinal Zen (Munoz released an earlier EP on QED under the name Makkina). And this Floppy Pillows EP takes his penchant for knitting together relaxing downtempo tunes, and turns it into a mantra: Chill out, now; stress out tomorrow. These are minimalist tunes, which are rarely not much more than a droning bass, a pad and some rhythmic loops... and yet, it all works.

|EMOREJ - Potpourri [qd-4223] - Jerome Llama|
Once again, the samplist known as Emorej pits his Acid Pro skills against vocal loops, 4-on-the-floor kickdrums and all sorts of fine funky riffs to come up with a chunky mix of vocal house, trance, drum n bass, breakbeats and even a jazzy downtempo number or two. Equal parts Dance Dance Revolution, Moby, C+C Music Factory and Deee-Lite/Towa Tei, this is one Potpourri that sure smells funky as a llama's ass.

|[qd-4269] not in the mood for dancing - shapes and concepts - Nelson Tan|
Cool and collected, this mature second release from not in the mood for dancing plays with subtle grooves that ebb and flow, coming up with four tracks that could be used as background music for documentaries or cyborg striptease numbers. Before it ends though, you are reminded that dance music instruments don't always produce dance music. A reminder that tools are tools and the shapes you build depend on the concepts behind the construction.

|[qd-4264] Demolee - Stars Falling - Franco Madrid|
Downtempo never sounded so smooth. What Manila-based producer Demolee does in his first full-length album, Stars Falling, is to create pretty fairy tales of melody and unhurried beats. The resulting 10-track album is chock full of jazzy relaxation that transcends country borders. Think Cafe del Manila instead of Cafe del Mar. Think of lazy breezes, meandering road trips, and star gazing on hot summer nights and you get the point...
